Gary Woodland's sudden-death playoff airs at 6:30 p.m.
Tune your television to the Golf Channel at 6:30 p.m. Central time today and you can see the future. Sort of.
Former Kansas University golfer Gary Woodland and Ryan Moore are scheduled to tee off then, which is 7:30 a.m. Monday in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. They tied for the lead at 14-under in the CIMB Classic after multiple rain delays. Darkness caused a delay for the sudden-death playoff.
Woodland missed a 10-foot, right-to-left birde putt on the low side on No. 18, the same hole where the playoff will occur. The 580-yard, par-5 hole makes the playoff particularly interesting. Woodland is one of the few players on tour who could reach the hole in two, provided he slams a long tee shot into the fairway. Moore, noted for his excellent wedge play, does not have that sort of length, so a great deal rides on Woodland’s tee shot.
Woodland finished the 2013 strong. The 2014 season already has started because tournaments at this time of year that didn’t used to count in the PGA tour money standings now count toward the next season.
Woodland switched caddies for the new season and how has veteran Tony Navarro, who used to be on Greg Norman’s bag, looping for him.
